Queen to Play with Adam Lambert in US
Queen is expected to play gigs in America this summer with Adam Lambert.
Drummer Brian May has revealed the band - which also features Roger Taylor - are still working together and planning to perform with Adam Lambert replacing the late Freddie Mercury as frontman.
"We are ongoing, we can't help it, I think we all protested too much in the sense when Freddie went and we didn't want to talk about it and didn't want to be Queen for a while. But after a while you realize that people wanna hear the songs and see us do things. So, no matter what you call it, Roger and I do do stuff and I think we'll be doing some more stuff this summer in fact, probably in the States," Brian said.
When quizzed about who will stand in as a frontman for the band, the 66-year-old musician said, "We've been talking to Adam Lambert, you know we've already done some gigs with Adam, who is amazing."
Brian and Roger have joined forces with 32-year-old Adam, who was the runner-up on American Idol in 2009, for a number of concerts in the past.
The band are also still "good friends" with Paul Rodgers, with whom they formed a supergroup in 2005, but Brian said it was unlikely they would work together anytime soon. "Paul has a career of his own and he can't do the Queen thing indefinitely," he added.
